Lawrence Durrell's Major Novels, Or, The Kingdom of the Imagination

Lawrence Durrell's Major Novels, Or, The Kingdom of the Imagination

Through his use of Gnostic beliefs, Durrell destabilizes our notions of the "real" and suggests that the civilization to emerge out of the ruins of a devastated Europe will not be Christian, but Quincunxial. Durrell's aesthetic and thematic concerns establish him as a significant, indeed central, voice in twentieth-century British literature. His career, which spans over five decades, links the British High Modernists with the Postmodernists.
